    I was looking into how to get my free copy of OS X Lion and it says that you need to request a copy within 30 days of Purchase. This would be fine however, in order to save some money I am ordering it off of amazon and having it shipped to my aunt's house in the states (I live in Canada). My concern is, that I am not planning on going down till the end of August to visit and pick up my new baby, which means I would miss out on the 30 days.

    As I am new to macs in general, could someone explain how I would go about requesting the upgrade? An whether or not I would need to request the upgrade before heading down?

    Many thanks :)

    If you're not going till the end of august, I would just hold off on ordering the computer till Lion is pre-installed.

    that was my first thought, though I have realized that SL is a solid and stable operating system, where as Lion will be new and therefore more prone to problems. Then again I am coming from the PC world and made the mistake with Vista (POS)

    30 days from the date of Lion coming out, not 30 days from purchase, you misread the policy my friend.

    Edit: Else those that did buy on June 6th wouldn't be allowed to have their copy as they are already past the 30 days mark and Lion isn't even out yet!
